Overview of the Educational Progress of Chinese Americans.
Chan, Kenyon S.; Tsang, Sau-Lim
This review of the educational progress of Chinese Americans examines the demographic, cultural, and learning characteristics of this group with respect to the historical and current status of bilingual/bicultural program development. The Lau v. Nichols case is cited as a major influence and precedent for the development of federally mandated services related to bilingual education. This paper further suggests that the maintenance of the home language and culture is the most controversial aspect of bilingual education, and presents examples for and against multiple language learning.
